Here’s an overview of Children of Morta:

When we last shared news about Children of Morta, it was around three years ago. The game had been funded on Kickstarter and was planned for Wii U.

Unsurprisingly, Wii U no longer appears to be in the picture. Children of Morta is planned for Switch instead, and is targeting a 2019 release.

With just a few hours remaining, the Children of Morta managed to reach another stretch goal. Donations topped $100,000 meaning the game will head to Nintendo’s console in the future.

Children of Morta is a story-driven hack ‘n slash game incorporating the elements of the roguelike genre, where you will go on an adventure with the guardian family of Bergsons.

The family have lived on the outskirts of Mount Morta, guarding it for many generations. As a tragic event in Morta corrupts the roots of life deep in the mountain, all the creatures turn into furious, possessed monsters. Now the land’s only hope is for the Bergsons to find the seeds of life and use them to cleanse the corruption.

The game has a unique art style blending the old-school 2D pixel art aesthetics with a few modern lighting and rendering techniques, bringing to life a world of fantasy and mystery. The game music is based around orchestral renaissance tunes with many variations to please your ears while taking this journey with the Bergsons.
